pier to actually enhance and add on to the whale infrastructure eaten geotech an engineering study the port commissions it is economically and geotechnically feasible to build a facility that is economic at the site the engineering firm i've mentioned they came duo to us as part of the engineering design or engineering study with a concept design of a facility we could potentially build another pier 96 the loop track from the rail generated we're connecting the two trails at the warrant those will connect the tracks to allow for the efficient movement of trains out to pier 96 to unload and load their ore and get the
8:01 am
trains back to the rail generated this also shows a railcar unloading facility down there are towards the bottom of the rail track it shows materials handling systems and storage shed and also ship loading conveyance system to load the very well in the request for proposals we'll the respondents can choose to use this design we've provided for them or come up with we they consider a better design of their own this the diagram shows a larger the larger rail infrastructure conducting the rail generated we could triple the loop and add 5 additional particularly stock exchanges in the rail yard the
8:02 am
red is the existing port rail and the green is new track in terms of the objectives that the port has for the proposal process first of all we would like to further the maritime commerce mission and also like to bring to full utilitytions a port asset and take advantage of the properties unique capacities for instance the fact it has 40 feet of water depth it has direct rail can we there's not room to build a storage conveyance infrastructure that is required to facilitate the loading of iron ore and urban loading we'll we would like to generate new revenues to the port and create maritime jobs in the southern waterfront we're requesting from the commission first of all we would like to

8:13 am
content not too much moisture and we envision it having covered storage with that said, actually was the main mining company we're working with nevada iron with that piece iron overcame from they initially said that's what we want to require building a covered storage we'll you know - and with all the judge in a different direction when all the things we produce in california where it that out of certainly a lot of it goes over seas. >> all over the world a lot of it is containers go to the port of the oakland most the produce some goes by air i don't know of any that is
8:14 am
going to the vessels similar to pier 80 but most of it is iou it goes into the air freight. >> thank you commissioner adams. >> jimmy want to thank you for your hard work and this is right where we need to go if you remember the grand jury report san francisco rising that's it that's maritime maritime needs to grow back in january director more and more and i met with mayor ed lee he was 2 hundred percent in about maritime jobs more maritime in the ports i think this is good and i think this is the beginning of pier 96 we need to develop it to the
8:15 am
maximum and also pier 80 and just really it adds another dimension to the port and plus our crews ships and maritime can't be a fading star in of the port of san francisco it noticing needs to be a beacon of light here to stay and we'll get people investigators that are willing to invest the money i know what our talking about china had the market cornered and things are coming out of australia but things go hot and heavy and then go cooler i'm supportive of it i think we need to put in the resources and really get an operator that is commit to provide jobs and also to develop our maritime and make it strong and active thank you.
8:16 am

8:17 am
three to four years we get the maintenance down to thirty feet. >> thank you for including specific directives it take into account seem like rise important one last this is dovetailing off of what commissioner brandon touched on earlier about our southern west coast beautification policy and that's somewhat affirmative action on the port i'm wondering if we're putting together criteria for operators to go above and beyond as referenced referred to the minimum requirement and points in the process for going above and beyond beautification of the area and mitigating against some
